I just finished this painting. Oil on canvas 26 x 29. Part of what I like about painting sumo wrestlers is the interaction between the figures; there's a wonderful sense of rhythm and movement as they struggle to overcome one another. They also convey a feeling of weight and tension. All of these qualities make them particularly well suited for a quick and fluid paint application.


  1. You have a special gift for sumo wrestlers (and girls in bikinis) David! Great work, as always!
